Video Pre-Production

Imagine the power of a short video online!

video camera media architects"We don't like surprises in the context of business so we don't expect our clients to feel differently. As we prepare for the video shoot, we help you prepare for us."

There are a myriad of variables for each video we make for websites, and we are positioned to help clients through the simple process. We make it a smooth, fluid and even a fun project for you and your staff!

First, Media Architects can help you determine the type of video production you need (please see possibilities below). We'll also need to confirm in which venues the media will be broadcast now or in the future before production starts; e.g., a video that is only embedded in a website is formatted different from one that will also be broadcast on TV. So, if it's intended for TV broadcast at some point, we need know to know that up front please.

Generally we can put a video treatment, or "story", into 1 of 3 main categories. You may feel confident that you know what is required for your own business. But, if not, we'll work with you to help make that determination. Please contact us to let us know what you would like to do for a video, but note that all video treatment development, including any proposal outlines, is a chargeable task.

1. Documentary Style and Informational Videos

We videotape what you want to feature about your business or particular product(s). We'll guide you to write a narrative if necessary, decide on the staff you want to participate, and guide you to prepare the production area (e.g., a manufacturing floor, front office, salon, classroom or any location where a neat, quiet environment can be achieved). It's our camera work and story optimizing editing abilities; your content. Usually 30 seconds to 3 minutes long.

2. Commercial Ad Style

We'll assist you in making a decision about the advertising message and the length of this video ad. It's often 30 seconds to 1 minute long. Note that whether a video is to be published on a TV station or not (i.e., versus posted on a website; in a blog, or YouTube) will influence production and costs. Please note that this should be determined before production starts.

3. Event Videos

Our main goal is to be virtually unnoticed while simultaneously in the thick of the event. We unobtrusively capture the people and environment from a professional's documentary perspective. Special events, like weddings, will be a prized possession, whether on a website we design for the occasion, or if we provide the video in a format of your choice with no online posting (please ask us about film versus video before production).

You will LOVE the results of our professionals' work, and you will find yourself pointing proudly to your website to view your custom video. It will help grow business and improve (SEO) rankings. More >>

Documentary Style
Company Reporting

Your workplace becomes the set; your staff, the talent. With this approach we illustrate your business in video. We apply the right audio to the right video sequences with our acute editing eyes and Voila!

Reports that need to be disseminated to company personnel and investors become accessible and popular with video. We can record a meeting, presentation or executive greetings, made viewable on your website.

Training Video
Advertising / Commercial

Do you want to sell more products from your technical inventory? Buyers will need to know how their features, and providing instructions in video format is an added value. You can also have us produce fee-based training segments. Get paid for your training content.

We create a commercial for your business, such as you see on TV, but costing a fraction. This production requires a team at Media Architects to consider the story line, write the script, and find talent - or use your staff if you prefer.


Highlight product features and provide training through video. Videotaping explanations of products and projects can save countless packing and shipping expenses, while providing an effective consistent message.

Highlight home or commercial real estate with videos. Informative and engaging, video makes potential buyers into real estate owners. Knock out your R.E. competition with video on your website.

Our History

There is no question that we learned as we went along. No apologies! It was, and is, a considerable effort to adapt to the constant changes in layout standards, dynamic functions and aesthetic sensibilities (and that's only the front end!). But it has been enjoyable all the way. From Cayuela Guitars in Spain, our first website clients, to our fascinating innumerable current crew of clients who maintain loyalty to Media Architects, we cheer the work and camaraderie, and forge ahead.


Cayuela Guitars in Seville, Spain was the first web project. While living there, Isa was excited about their craftsmanship and the 3 generation of luthiers behind it. Always media project focused, audio-video system transitioned to web design
